don't listen to me I was asking a question more then anything.

That why I deleted the post. Second post that is.

CPUID tells you the actual speed, whichh is 400mhz but your running double data rate ram, which makes it 800 mhz. whatever it says just double it and that is the speed your ram is running.

Well, If you are overclocked try to get it somewhere around 3.6ghz, I ran 5770 1GB Crossfire with no problems with a 3.8ghz oc. If your planning to run high resolutions go for it, It will decrease bottleneck issues. Either way you go you should still have pretty smooth gameplay with a setup as configured in the OP. Anything above 3.2ghz shoulld run pretty well. Good luck

also as most likely stated, ensure c1e and speedstep is disabled in the bios

and disable all fan controllers so your fan runs full speed. I ran my CPu on water, But before that i ran it on Intel Extreme air cooler from an "X" Series CPU. I never seen temps that high though. Just repaste and reseat the cpu until the temps drop. Also dont over paste the CPU as that sometimes makes the temps worse than better. Grain of rice method.

Yea and 2:3 part had me as will until I found thread taking about q6600 fsb being 266 and though in bios it ram show 800mhz Cpuid show it at 400 like you said.

Either way if your getting lag in the OS and in games that was never there before with your older video card I would say the vid card is defective, and your ram is fine as long as it all is the same size and can run at the timings you have it set to. It will just make it more of a pain to overclock.

The OP has a Core 2 Quad, not a Core 2 Duo, and regardless, their system would be no slower than yours, if not faster, if clocked at the same 3.4GHz your CPU is, so there's no reason to upgrade it just because it's obsolete.

The problem is, that Intel board is holding the OP back to stock clocks since they can't overclock on it, which, yes, those stock clocks @2.4GHz are going to bottleneck that video card a fair bit on average.

Regardless, as I said before, this cannot be the problem. The OP is seeing very big issues and worse performance that weren't present with the previous video card, so this isn't a case of bottlenecking. There's a big software problem or a big hardware problem here. If it's the latter, the new video card would be the obvious suspect.

I have to agree. My rig plays all current games just fine 60+ FPS high settings at 1080p and and my gpu rarely see's over 60% usage.

I have to agree with others that there may be a vid card issue. are you sure the vid card is getting enough power?

i didint read through this entire thread but i thought i would share my personal exp. i just went from a Q6600 to a 2600k. I had my q6600@4.00ghz under a phase change with a gtx580. while the system did run well i noticed a pretty decent leap in FPS in many games when i upgraded. i know the 580 is a monster but the 560 is nothing to sneeze at. it might hold it back some but not a ton.

It sounds like something to do with the video card. A bottleneck isn't going to give you lower performance than you had with a lesser card.

same.my fps nearly doubled when i changed from q6600 at 3,2ghz to an i5 2500k with my gtx560ti.
